As someone who writes about fashion on a near-daily basis, I'm constantly scouring the web for newsworthy deals. With most days now lingering near cooler temps and with summer on the horizon, I'm looking high and low for transitional pieces right now. Think breezy linen pants, light jackets, and versatile tops. Well, I'm excited to say that I've found all of these pieces and (much) more at Nordstrom's Spring Sale.
To make way for the new season and for a fresh batch of closet newness, Nordstrom is having a massive sale from now until April 9 with discounts of up to 60 percent off best-selling brands. Everything from summer dresses and shoes to classic button-down shirts and denim shorts is on steep discount. Not only that, but you can also score jewelry, sunglasses, and handbags on sale, too.
This sale is truly a big one—as in over 14,000 discounted pieces big. But don't worry, I did all of the heavy lifting for you. Ahead, I've rounded up the best spring-to-summer pieces from every major category that are worth adding to your closet. You may want to hurry, though. Pieces were literally selling out as I wrote this story.
Shop On-Sale Tops
While I don't think you need a reason to add another button-up shirt to your closet, in case you do, this one is 40 percent off and features a gorgeous color. The kelly green shade is the perfect spring update for your go-to white shirt and it's so easy to style. Pair it with a ribbed tank and trousers and you're good to go.
Come springtime, I always have my eye on on-sale coats and jackets and after spotting this one, I've never clicked "add to cart" so fast. The racer style fits right into the motocross trend the fashion set has been loving as of late, but it's still classic enough to wear for years to come. I will absolutely be throwing this over all of my dresses during the spring.
If you're tired of the same old button-ups in your closet, switch it up with this Free People blouse. The cinched-in waist and side ties make this piece cooler than all of your other shirts. With the longer cut, this would look so chic with a pair of stirrup leggings and ballet flats.
You might think this is a run-of-the-mill sweatshirt, but let me assure you it's much more. The swoosh detail, curved hem, and oversized fit make this Nike pick much cooler than your average sweatshirt. Throw on the matching pair of black joggers (which are also on sale, btw) and chunky hoops and you've got yourself an elevated loungewear outfit.
Shop On-Sale Bottoms
It's not every day great leggings like these go on sale, and from Nike no less. These are made from that kind of Dri-FIT sweat-wicking material Nike is known for, so dare to wear these on your most intense workouts. They're also soft and smooth like butter, making them great for lounging, too.
One of 2023's hottest denim trends is flare jeans, so I couldn't be happier to snag a pair on sale. Just like MC's Style Director Sarah Holzman suggests, I'll be wearing mine with pointed-toe heels (like the Franco Sarto pair, below) to elevate them for the office, then throwing on sneakers for the weekend.
You're not fully summer-ready unless you have a pair of denim cutoffs. Whether it be a festival, beach day, or happy hour, these Levi's shorts will suit any summer event you have on your agenda. Plus, your legs are going to look so long with their high-waisted fit and short shredded hems.
Levi's Ribcage jeans are an editor favorite for a reason. The extra high waist looks good on everyone and the classic straight style will never go out of style. One customer review says, "They fit like a glove. Stunning and a staple for all year long."
Yet another piece to add to your capsule wardrobe is this black midi skirt. From blouses, crop tops, and sweaters, this piece is so versatile. We promise you'll wear it time and time again, no matter the season.
I may have already included three Levi's pieces on this list, but these jeans were too good to not make the cut. This iconic style is inspired by vintage denim we all love. The Wedgie jeans feature a high waist designed to show off your curves, with butt-lifting powers and a slimmer leg than the Ribcage jeans above.
Shop On-Sale Dresses
This top-rated dress can be styled up and down in a pitch for any occasion. Heading into the office? Throw on a blazer and heeled sandals. Going to brunch with the girls? Add a pair of white sneakers and a bracelet or two. The opportunities are endless.
Everyone needs a basic LBD in their closets—sorry, I didn't make the rules. This dress is only $20 and when you figure out the cost per wear, it's an even better deal. Make this your ultimate layering piece with cool jackets and sandals, then in the winter time add tights, knee-high boots, and a coat.
Have you seen a more perfect dress for spring and summer? The wrap style flatters every body type, plus it can easily be dressed up or down with heels or sneakers. Somehow it's over 50 percent off and still in stock, but something tells us not for long.
Florals for spring? We absolutely approved, especially when it's a style as cute as this. I know you have at least one wedding on your agenda in the coming months and this dress makes for the perfect outfit. The wrap style and ruching detail is ultra flattering, plus the metallic pattern is so on trend.
Shop On-Sale Shoes
Nike has so many good picks on sale right now, but I was especially shocked to see these discounted. I wear this pair every single day for my workouts and I'm obsessed. They keep my feet comfortable and supported whether I'm running on the treadmill or lifting weights. Plus, they just look so cool on my feet.
Every single one of these shoes' 15 (!!!) different colorways are on sale, so go ahead and stock up. Reviewers are obsessed with how comfy these are. One even wrote, "I wore these for the first time in Las Vegas for 5+ hours on my feet. 0 blisters, feet never hurt once." Color us impressed.
Warm weather is nearly here, which means it's time to switch out your ankle boots with spring sandals. Not only do these slides come in on-trend metallic gold, but you have your pick from neutrals like black and off-white, plus fun lime green, pale blue, and coral. I plan on buying at least one if not two, pairs.
In case you didn't know, slingback heels make for an excellent summer shoe. This pair, in 2023's hottest color lavender, puts a little more polish on your go-to work heels. If purple is not your thing, there's also several shades of nude on sale to suit your fancy.
